Description: Because of the food safety restrictions, we can no longer offer tours...
Because of the food safety restrictions, we can no longer offer tours through our production area. However we are able to provide a revised tour that includes a presentation of our history and a chocolate experience of how we make chocolate by hand and candy that cannot be made on a machine. You will see and learn how chocolate is tempered and how to make hollows. We also have a video available that shows plant production. Currently our chocolate experience is available Monday thru Thurs at 1pm however with larger groups we may be able to accommodate other times. Also, our Das Sweeten Haus retail store and museum are open most days. The Das Sweeten Haus museum features illustrations of old-time American candy craftsmen. You'll see many special display cases filled with wooden sugar molds, glass candy jars, and many other priceless antiques. You'll also see a video of the Wolfgang candy-making process ... Along with a complete history of the Wolfgang family who made their candy making dream come true in York, PA back in 1921.

So it kind of in a bad area and parking is not easy . The tour is really interesting and the kids found it fun . They give you a candy bar at the end , but you really get to see the good and bad of a canary factory. We will likely go do it again .

Spent an interesting few moments at the factory. It's located right off Interstate 30. Fairly easy to get to. Tours are at 1:00 so be aware of your time. Although the lady who had just finished up one hung around and gave us a private quickie one. That was nice of her. If you're in the area it's a nice... More

This tour was great for little kids. Not much of a tour however just a talk on the history and a demonstration of how they still make some of the candy by hand. But our kids (ages 3-10) all enjoyed and they product is very good.

On our tour were little day care children. The guide was so welcoming to little kiddos and involved them throughout the tour. She demonstrated how chocolates are formed in a mold. reservations are required.

When the sale section is open grab a stroll thru it as the prices are worthy to afford. Ask for samples. Overstocked pretzels in the old fashioned car need to be eaten days within opening or restored as they go stale quickly. Overall, i love stopping here when in York, to see the specials.

On a recent trip to York, PA we saw a sign for Wolfgang's and decided to stop. There was no tour that day but the saleslady was very nice. We bought candy to take home & everyone we gave it to enjoyed it. Some of the "seconds" were broken up, but that's what seconds are. We will definitely stop there... More

York is a not a great place to visit, bad streets, getto area, lots of crime, go someplace safe.It is not worth seeing.
